Peaking. Every outstanding team does it at the right
time. The North Carolina wrestling team is hoping to
peak this weekend, at the focal point of what has been a
successful season for Coach Bill Lam's grapplers. .
The Tar Heels will travel to College Park, Md., this
weekend to compete in the Atlantic Coast Conference
wrestling championships. Lam said that this weekend
will be the most important one to date for his team.
"Nobody asks what you did in the dual match
season," Lam said. "They want to know where you
placed in the ACCs, and where you placed in the na
tionals. We feel like the regular season is a learning ex
perience, and that the tournament is a new season all to
North Carolina used the regular season to full ad
vantage, finishing 12-5 overall and 4-2 in the ACC,
despite a murderous schedule. All five of the Tar Heel
losses have come against top-20 teams, the defeats com
ing against No. 4 Iowa State, No. 5 Northern Iowa, No.
9 Navy, and twice to ACC foe N.C. State, No. 14. UNC
has beaten several talented teams, however, including
Clemson, Maryland and Wilkes.
The difficulty of the schedule has not been a detri
ment, .but a positive influence on the Tar Heels, Lam
said. "More so than the other schools in theCC, we are
prepared for the NCAAs," Lam said. "We wrestle those
schools in dual meets, and we're not awestruck when we
get to the nationals."
The Tar Heels have been working hard to get into top
form for this weekend, getting up at 6:30 a.m. daily for
the past two weeks to run sprints, in addition to regular
afternoon practice sessions.
"There is no way you can hold top conditioning all
through the season," Lam said. "The rigors of the
season will wear you down physically, so we try to bring
the team back to top physical condition for the ACCs
and the nationals."
Lam said the signs that show a wrestler is about to
peak are often deceiving, with the wrestler often appear
ing tired and sluggish just before reaching top condition.
"Sometimes, if a wrestler is sloppy in practice, I feel
better about it than I do if he is sharp. The sluggishness
could be a sign that the wrestler is about to reach peak
form," Lam said. "Bob Shriner, Bill Gaffney and Jan
Michaels are all showing signs of peaking right now, and
all of those guys have a good shot at winning individual
championships in the ACCs."
The Tar Heels will need good performances from all
of their wrestlers if they expect to do anything in the na-
tionals. The 10 individual champions from this week
end's tournament will advance to the nationals to be
held in Oklahoma City, March 10-12. In addition to the
10 champs, nine at-large berths will be awarded, giving
the ACC 19 berths in all, up three from last year's total
Lam said that in order for a wrestler to qualify, he
would almost have to make the finals, unless he was a
proven wrestler who had lost in the early rounds because
of an injury or a mistake.
"If we can qualify live people for the NCAAs we will
be in great shape," Lam said. "We qualified six last
year, and we had five Ail-Americans. Even if we qualify
five or six this year, it won't be the same as the six we
qualified last year. v
"Still, a young wrestler needs to go to the nationals
once to see what it is all about. Then he won't be
awestruck when he goes back in the future."
Lam said he expected the ACC tournament to be a
four-team race, with UNC, N.C. State, Maryland and
Clemson all having a shot at the team title..
"This will be the most wide open year in a long time as
far as this tournament is concerned," Lam said. "We
are going up there knowing that we could finish
anywhere from first to fourth. We are confident that we
can finish in the top two, and we would like to think that
we are capable of winning it all."
